Vox VGA3PSTR 6-String RH Giulietta VGA-3PS Archtop Acoustic Electric Guitar – Trans Red vga-3-pstr
The VOX VGA3PSTR archtop acoustic electric guitar features VOX's new Super Capacitor Preamp System, which provides clear, brilliant sound for up to 5 hours (TBD) after a quick 10-minute (TBD) charge via USB.
The VOX Giulietta VGA-3PS single cutaway archtop acoustic/electric guitar was designed with the contemporary player in mind. Its unique design features classic archtop styling, yet offers modern playability and cutting-edge sound quality thanks to VOX's new Super Capacitor Preamp System.
The new Giulietta VGA-3PS is an evolution of the classic, full-hollow archtop guitar. These all-new compact archtops feature sophisticated electronic technology, allowing for more versatility and performance friendly features when recording or playing live. These guitars also feature VOX's new Super Capacitor Preamp System, which provides clear, brilliant sound for up to 5 hours (TBD) after a quick 10-minute (TBD) charge via USB.
The engineers and designers at VOX set their sights on developing a guitar that has all the looks and cool-factor of a classic archtop guitar, but was more easily playable and adaptable to a variety of playing styles and environments. The Giuletta's excellent on-board piezo pickup system transforms the typical dull tone of an archtop by providing greater dynamic sensitivity, a more even distribution of lows, mids & highs, and enhanced sustain that rivals your favorite flattop acoustic. The Volume and Tone controls are discreetly located on the pickguard, just like a classic archtop, keeping the look crisp and uncluttered while delivering a wide range of tones to suit any style. There is also a low-cut pot that is adjustable with a small flat blade screwdriver to custom tailor the bass response of your guitar.
The Giulietta VGA-3PS features a compact body size, which makes for a more comfortable and practical playing experience, but also helps reduce feedback and improve the overall tone of the guitar. The real secret of the Giulietta, however, is the innovative patent-pending VOX Hybrid Bridge System.
The VOX Hybrid Bridge System uses a traditional wooden base that features a specially-developed laminated wood/aluminum top section. The compensated one-piece saddle is equipped with a proprietary piezo system that provides quick response and even string-to-string output. Additionally, this unique combination of materials widens the frequency response of the piezo system, adding sparkling high harmonics and also significantly increasing sustain. As an added bonus, this bridge also reduces feedback at high volumes.
Not content to stop there, the designers & engineers at VOX also sought to address another common issue with piezo-equipped archtop guitars; over-ring. This phenomenon occurs when a bridge-mounted piezo pickup amplifies not only the fretted sound, but also the length of string between the bridge and tailpiece, creating an undesirable effect that interrupts your performance. To address this, VOX developed a simple-to-use removable string mute (included with the guitar) that prevents over-ring and leaves you with a pure, clean sound.
